(JULY 24) LAS VEGAS -
September, 16th is a huge day for boxing in Las Vegas, with Saul
"Canelo" Alvarez facing Gennady "GGG" Golovkin in a must-win
contest for the king of the middleweight division. As boxing's
elite descend on the Las Vegas Strip, the Raging Babes of Boxing
will once again gather to network, laugh and bond over brunch.
This year's event will be held at
the Mandalay Bay's Border Grill, with views of Mandalay Bay's
beach, and the unlimited mimosas that brunch attendees have come
to expect over four years of Raging Babe events. More

Shine Bright will benefit a cause close to Rosado's heart - the
recovery of boxer Prichard Colon. "Prichard has made some great
strides in his recovery, but the fact remains that the therapy
he needs, the medical expenses, the support that his family
needs, doesn't end. His family has sacrificed everything to help
him get better, and he sacrificed everything to entertain us in
the ring." Rosado, along with boxing manager and entrepreneur
Livvy Cunningham, created the Facebook group, "Pray 4 Prichard,"
which has been a place for the Colon family to find
encouragement and support via messages from boxing fans all over
the world. A percentage of the proceeds from Shine Bright will
